WHOAAA!!! Oh my goodness!!!! Today I learned that I am nominated for an Emmy Award! In 70 years of Emmy history, I am the fifth black woman to be nominated for outstanding choreography. I truly feel myself being uplifted by the women who came before me every single day!!
I will never be able to say thank you enough times. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to be working with such incredible producers, directors and the entire creative team at the Late Late Show. Thank you James Corden, Ben Winston, Rob Crabbe, Glenn Clements, Dave Piendak, Lou Trabbie, Rob Engalla, Josie, Lauren, and Kate for trusting my creative voice. Thank you Ava Bernstine for being by my side and being the best teammate during this amazing journey on the Late Late Show. Thank you to the MSA Agency and Sillar Management for believing in me! Thank you to my LA ride or die LLS team, Brandon, Dexter Carr, Leo Lam, and Becca Nelson. And of course, thank you to all the artists and dancers for rocking out - Hugh Jackman, Zendaya, and Zac Efron! You’re all rock stars!!!
I have endless love for my mentor, Ms. Debbie Allen (who, by the way, has been nominated 19 TIMES!!!) You show me the way, and because of you, I can. Thank you mom, Tadeo, and Maud for being the fire that motivates me every day, and my Sync Ladies sisters for being the most real sister-friends in the world!!
Thank you EVERYBODY for all the love through this wild Emmy journey!! With every text message, comment, and like, I felt the love ❤️ This is just the beginning!
